Question Owners: A concise description of your business

First post here!

I'm preparing a business plan.

I am looking to here from the owners or operators of small, medium, and large companies, new start-ups, middle of the road, and well established guys in the industry.

Provide a concise description of your business.

Thanks!

Contact your local S.C.O.R.E. chapter score.org they can help you with your business plan, but like us here, they won't write it for you. Good luck and welcome to lawnsite.

"We mow grass and plow snow............"

not sure, if you are answering the question of "what should I (lawnandsnowguy) put....?" just looking to hear from a variety of different landscapers, lawn maintenance, turf repair, greenskeeper, specialist companies, etc. operating in our industry! What makes their company different from the rest! ie. some prefer to service the customer fully by offering a suite of services, some just specialize.

Contact your local S.C.O.R.E. chapter score.org they can help you with your business plan, but like us here, they won't write it for you. Good luck and welcome to lawnsite.

Thanks for the info, I'm not really interested in getting help writing a business plan, per say. My intent isn't to copy anyone or steal other people's ideas. I just wanted to hear how other companies bill themselves.

No, just a short description of what you do.

Everything but Irrigation, because I'm not licensed for it. Although I'd like to change that soon.

If you are preparing a business plan for yourself and by yourself, why do want other business owners to "provide" you with a written "concise description of" our businesses?

If you want to research what services different companies offer, just go to the websites of the companies you are interested in learning more about and start reading. Feel free to visit my site.

There are all different types of companies on this site that offer a variety of services. How will reading someone's "short description of what (they) do" help you with your business plan?

Are you asking these questions because you are trying to decide which services you want your business to offer or is there some other reason you want us to supply you with a "concise description"?
